Just wondering what operating system everyone uses and who's now on Windows 11 or other operating systems?
And your reasons why.

Jaymoss, added your vote to "Windows 11" (and removed from ‘other’)

Also, iOS on my iPad and Android on my phone (OnePlus 7 Pro).

HP probook Laptop is W7 with classic shell
Samsung Galaxy A12 Phone is Android.
Bravia smart TV is Sony's version of Mint
The desk PC is XP SP3 for legacy reasons

I knew Sony had used versions of Linux over the years, but I didn't know they'd used a Mint "flavour", they don't normally give enough information to be that specific.

When I was trying to sort out a media serving problem I used the Universal Media Server as an experiment ( I currently use Serviio) and it reported the renderer's OS as Mint. They changed the next year to Android and my set must be a bit of a hybrid because I have had an occasional error message: The Android process has stopped.

At home I'm a Mac user so MacOS for me. I like how it just works and things are easy to find and do.
So we have a combination of iOs and MacOS devices.



At work we are mostly Windows 10 but I'm going to be trialing out Windows 11 in the near future and checking it gets on with all my Global Policies I have set on the Domain.


Found a member of staff still bringing in their old Windows 7 laptop the other day.

Quickly taken out of service and upgraded.

Windows 10 but if Microsoft hadn't screwed me over with the Windows 11 requirements I would have moved to that.

Android on mobile devices.

This would have made more sense as a multi-choice poll as most people now use multiple devices and they aren’t all loaded with Microsoft.

I do about 90% of my work and all of my leisure on an iPad, about half of that with a keyboard attached, so I’ve selected iOS in the poll. However there are still some tasks in my working week that require a full desktop so I also use MacOS.

Jaymoss 10-05-2022 16:33

Re: What operating system do you use?
 
Windows 11 PC
Windows 10 Laptop
Android Phone and 2 tablets
OpenATV and Wookiebuild on my Mut@ant HD2
Android TV Skinned by Amazon on my Firestick and Firecube
DD WRT on my linksys router running as secondary behind a VPN

Thought I would go mad on it seeing as a TV was mentioned hahaha
